What is up at West Marine? in Gear Anarchy Posted April 28 Looking for board members to email my displeasure on a winch I paid for that has been backordered for 7 weeks and no resolution in sight, I see West Marine got taken private by investment firm L. Catterton. This happened on the 14th of April according to CBS marketwatch and investment site Seeking Alpha. https://www.crunchbase.com/acquisition/lcatterton-acquires-west-marine--24b2a6b4 The executive team looks almost all new comparing folks on the WM site, so there must have been a major shakeup. Seems like internal focus is the current order of the day (eg navel gazing). Anyone know what is going on in Watsonville?
